Thou Release Cover Of Alice In Chains’ “Them Bones”

Thou have released their cover of Alice In Chains‘ “Them Bones.” This track is from Magnetic Eye Records‘ new tribute to Alice In Chains‘ “Dirt.” That effort is titled “Dirt (Redux)” and it will be released on September 18. Bryan Funck commented:

“It seemed inevitable that we’d do another AIC song since their music was such a big part of Matthew‘s [Thudium, Thou guitarist] and my formative years. We had covered ‘No Excuses‘ some years ago, but it never quite got the reaction I thought it deserved, and our arrangement was a slowed-down and kind of left-field take on the song. With ‘Them Bones‘, we had a chance to tackle a song that more directly translated to our style. The song had been on my mind anyway — I had recently listened to a podcast that dissected all the tracks on ‘Dirt‘ and it really dawned on me that opening the album with ‘Them Bones‘ was such a bold and cool move. No count off, no intro, just straight into the insanity.”
